Mrs Sowter June 2023
Great little cottage in a quiet rural location. The owner, Johnny was friendly and helpful. There were treats awaiting us - scones, cream and jam and biscuits for our dog who enjoyed playing in the large paddock, sometimes with the owners' lovely dog! A great location for both the coast and inland. Would be happy to return next time we're in wonderful North Devon.
Mrs Case June 2023
Moonstone is a delightful lodge, beautifully and tastefully furnished, light and airy. We felt very cosseted and looked after. On arrival a cream tea was waiting for us and on further investigation there were other goodies in the fridge. And a nice touch was the locally made soap in the bathroom. The owners are friendly yet discreet, lovely people who clearly take a great pride in their property and enjoy having people to share their idyll.
Mrs Leach May 2023
Lovely sat outside in the late sun listening to the birds
Mrs Hood April 2023
Great Little gem. Perfect for 2 and our 4 legged friend. Quiet and peaceful but able to get to lovely beaches and walks within half an hour. Great to have access to an exercise field for those very early wake up calls from the dog. Totally secure, we kept dog jn there when we packed the car up. Hosts very friendly but not intrusive. A very relaxing holiday perfect for recharging the batteries.
Mrs Hastie April 2023
What a delightful find Moonstone is. In the grounds of the owners home but totally secluded. The cottage itself was so welcoming and the lovely owners had left us a welcome pack to get us started with bread, eggs, cheese, butter and milk. So helpful and friendly. The cottage is perfect for two people and a dog. There is everything you need and more inside Moonstone. Outside space is fabulous especially if you have a dog with you. Pablo our spaniel loved a run around the meadows a few times a day. The whole thing is enclosed so very safe for your dogs. All in all a lovely little cottage. Very peaceful yet only a few minutes drive to the main A39 which will take you to the lovely towns and beaches of North Devon.
Mrs Kesby October 2022
We loved everything about this property
It was spotlessly clean beautifully decorated and felt very welcoming. The owner was a warm friendly chap The location was perfect for us as keen walkers as there are plenty of walks in close proximity all round from arriving to leaving we loved it all and will definitely return.....
Mrs Pickering October 2022
Moonstone Cottage is in a perfect location in North Devon for exploring the surrounding areas including the Dartmoor Prison Museum, walking on Dartmoor, visiting Clovelly and the amazing Saunton Sands.
Mr Young August 2022
Secluded spot within 10 minutes access to the main A road - great as a base to explore and better still for total 'switch off and read a book location'
Mrs Morgan June 2022
The owners were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The welcome pack was really useful and very generous. The cottage is exactly as described on the website. It is very comfortable and cosy. The garden is enclosed and very safe and private for anyone visiting with a dog. Our Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla Sebastian loved the paddock to run around in. It was just a pity we didn't get to spend much time sitting in the garden as the weather wasn't too good . However, it didn't stop us from having a lovely holiday. The nearest pub " The Bell Inn " in Parkham is well worth a visit for a nice meal and Seb had a great welcome. Definitely book though. We would definitely recommend this property and visit again
Mrs Parsons May 2022
Lovely cottage, with great hosts. A superb field for your dog to enjoy. We love it here, close to Instow, Appledore, Bideford and Barnstable. Comfortable bed and all the main conveniences. Well worth a try.
Mr Mawdsley May 2022
Our 3rd visit to Moonstone which in itself suggests we love this little cottage. As always, standard of cleanliness and facilities are perfect for our needs. The paddock is our Labradors favourite place, totally secure so she can wander about under her own steam and have a great time exploring all the nooks and crannies. Great to see Johnny and Nesta, always on hand for any help or advice when needed. The welcome pack is brilliant and the cider never lasts very long.
Mrs Long May 2022
Lovely comfortable cottage. Perfect for a couple. Very friendly owner. Would highly recommend.
Mr & Mrs THACKRAY April 2022
Lovely cottage, nice people, lovely welcome pack

Mr Crouch October 2021
Very comfortable and well-equipped accommodation. The owners are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Mr Marchant September 2021
A well equipped property with an amiable and helpful owner. If you like walking there are miles of coastal paths to walk. A variety of good pubs nearby.
Dr Croft September 2021
Had a fab stay at Moonstone, loved that it’s so close to interesting places to visit such as Hartland Abbey, Saunton Sands and Clovelly and only a short drive to a beautiful wooded section of the SW coast path at Bucks Mills. The owners were really friendly and welcoming and the cottage is immaculately clean, with an enclosed patio, utility room and nearby paddock which were handy for my dog. Loved the welcome pack - especially the locally made flapjack and cider! Thanks again for a relaxing stay.
Mrs Mckenna September 2021
Moonstone is a wonderful, superbly clean and comfortable cottage for two in peaceful and private surroundings. The hosts do not bother you apart from collecting the weekly rubbish. A generous welcome pack of essentials was provided by the hosts much to our surprise which was a lovely touch. Hope to return again.
Mr Walker August 2021
Moonstone cottage is in an ideal location if you are looking for solitude and peace. There are major stores within 6 miles if needed, and some good local pubs. The owners are so nice and welcoming, and are there for any questions you may have. I have booked again next year, this time for a fortnight with my dog , she will love the paddock which is within a couple of yards from your front door and full inclosed. Lovely walks all around and the beaches are not to far. I can’t recommend this cottage enough.
Mrs Morse August 2021
Moonstones had all we needed for a lovely week. We used most facilities in the cottage and all in good working order. Little touches like the welcome hamper, soap and toilet rolls are great and really useful until you get to the shops. Moonstones is just a few miles from some lovely beaches. Bucks Mills is beautiful, and very close, there's car parking too. Clovelly is stunning, worth a visit. Garden centre just up the lane is fantastic, worth a stop. The Atlantic village has plenty of supermarkets if required. Watch out for fast traffic down the lanes tho. Never met one tractor at all, but lanes are very busy. We had a lovely week there.
Mr Mawdsley July 2021
Our second visit to Moonstone and already booked our third. Cottage as always was immaculately clean and with everything you could possibly need. Also, nice addition of a new sofa which is very comfy. Welcome pack is so generous and has some lovely local produce, the cider didn’t last long after our arrival!! Johnny and Nesta are so lovely and happy to help with advice on places to visit, best time to go etc. We had a brilliant week and our dog Bramble is missing the paddock already, can’t wait to go back next year .
Mr Hobbs July 2021
Any of above
Mr Wootton June 2021
Excellent cottage in a great location with very friendly owners
Mr Bryant May 2021
Received a warm friendly welcome on arrival from Nesta, Johnny and Milo. Moonstones is a very comfortable cottage with everything you could want to make your stay enjoyable. Very clean and all sanitising requirements met. We had a bad storm blow in whilst we were there and Johnny came across to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Would stay here again without hesitation if we were in that area. Have already recommended Moonstones to a friend.
Mrs Warder May 2021
A wonderful, little cottage. Ideal for two plus a dog. Everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The cottage is very well maintained, warm and the flooring is so practical for four legged friends. The paddock is ideal for excercising the dog and completely safe for them to run. Lovely welcome pack on arrival, bread, milk, eggs, cheese, butter, cider and 2 delicious flapjacks, and treats for the dog, all very much appreciated. Even flowers on the table. Lovely touch. Look forward to the next time.
mr callahan April 2021
Moonstone is a little gem, the website details don't do it justice. The cottage was so clean and well equipped, absolutely everything you could possibly need was there, from hairdryer to iron, dishwasher tablets to clothes horse (even all the instruction manuals were kept in a file for the electrical equipment). The welcome pack including eggs,bread,milk,cheese,flapjacks and cider was lovely upon arrival, as was our warm welcome from Jonny. The layout of the cottage was well thought out and the location very peaceful, just the occasional tractor coming down the lane. Perfect for a couple with a dog....with the tiled floors and underfloor heating I didn't have to worry about wet paws on a cream carpet! I would stay again without hesitation
Mr Le Grand February 2021
This is a wonderfully secluded and welcoming part of the Devon countryside

Mrs Cole October 2019
Best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in. It was perfect for me & my dog! Liked the enclosed paddock for exercising the dog. The ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude of the owners. The peace & tranquility of the area, yet easy to get to places of interest. The delicious ‘welcome pack’ of local goodies. I could go on & on...............
Mrs Cocks August 2019
We had a very enjoyable week. Johnny and Nesta (and Milo) are very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is nicely furnished and very well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a great base for exploring that part of Devon and we would definitely recommend this cottage if you're looking for a quiet getaway within an easy car journey of Bideford / Barnstaple.
Miss Hale August 2019
Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Hosts very welcoming, lots of info about the surrounding area including maps, food recommendations and sights to see. Very well placed for Devon, Cornwall and Exmoor. Lovely enclosed paddock for our dog and the utility room was a godsend during the wet weather. Look forward to revisiting next year.
Mrs Potter July 2019
The cottage is wonderful, clean, everything you need is there. The hosts are fantastic people with loads to chat about. The outside space is brilliant for people and dogs, all enclosed and very safe. Local chip shop has excellent food. Loads of places to visit, all not too far away from the cottage. Highly recommend Northam Burrows, it's beach is huge. You must visit this cottage and all the area has to offer, it is great.
Mr Mawdsley July 2019
Moonstone is a fabulous cottage with everything you need for a very enjoyable holiday, the paddock is excellent for anyone with a four legged friend and the location is so peaceful and tranquil, Johnny and Nesta are excellent hosts and Johnnys tips and advice on places to visit and local knowledge Is invaluable!

Mrs Cox August 2017
Moonstone is a wonderful, peaceful haven. Johnny and Nesta go out of their way to make your stay special. The welcome pack is more generous than anywhere we have ever stayed and there are many other thoughtful touches such as ordinance survey maps, complimentary toiletries, books, games and DVDs provided. The property is spotlessly clean and well maintained. It is in an excellent location for touring this lovely part of north Devon.
Mr Straw August 2017
A lovely warm, clean welcoming cottage.

The location of the property was ideal as we wanted a quiet, get away from it all holiday. The cottage was absolutely delightful with all the facilities anyone could need.

We really can't fault anything (well apart from the weather on some days!), the week went far too quickly. Thank you.

Great reception, and friendly hosts. Sets a very high standard.
Mr Walker August 2015
The property was fantastic, just what we hoped for. Moonstone was the cleanest and best kept cottage we have stayed in, everything was perfect. We can not rate this property high enough, the owners were wonderful and so very helpful, nothing was too much trouble, advice, gifts and overall very nice people. The property was great, had everything we could possibly need, set in the middle of the countryside, so peaceful and what a change to see a full night sky of stars, to much light pollution where we come from. We took our Greyhound, who had a fantastic time, and the paddock was great for him to let off steam. We will be going again. :)
Mr Clarke August 2015
We had a very enjoyable week at ' Moonstone' it is in an ideal spot for exploring North Devon. The cottage was very well equipped and clean, a lovely paddock for our dog to run around in. The welcome pack provided by the owners was the best that we have ever had, it was very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend it.
Mr Wensink July 2015
Moonstone is the best holiday cottage we ever stayed in. Everything was simply perfect. The location (very quiet), the hosts (very helpful and kind), the garden (enlosed garden + large paddock), the goodies (bread, eggs, cider, milk, butter eggs, flowers, etc.), the coast (Hartland quay!). The pub in Parkham (The Bell's Inn) serves excellent food. Perfect for dog owners.
We didn't want to leave and certainly reccommend it to our Dutch friends.
Mr Sampson June 2015
Good location, comfortable and more spacious than expected.
Mr Sharp June 2015
Had a great time. Dog loved the paddock. Welcome pack excellent. Owners very friendly.
Miss Porter June 2015
What a lovely home from home, free from clutter and very clean. It's in an ideal location for exploring both Devon and North Cornwall. Welcome pack was the best we've seen yet made up with fabulous local produce; I've never seen yolks so bright in eggs before (and we do have free range at home). The bed was the most comfortable we've stayed in too. The pooch loved the paddock which was clean and very dog friendly. The owners were very friendly and informative and the cottage had everything you could want/need. A bonus was being able to watch the bats in the evenings through the patio doors and although the weather wasn't right for it for us I reckon the paddock was be awesome to star gaze from on a clear dark night. Although we're currently exploring the South-West should we go back to Devon we would definately look to book Moonstones again.
Mr Holt March 2015
Great quiet location. Good local information on hand in written form and from the owner on a personal basis.

Mr Brown April 2014
Great location within 10-15 mins of Westward Ho! and Instow beaches. Further afield, Bude and Woolacombe can be reached in just over half an hour. We were equally happy to stay at the cottage though as it was so peaceful and private. The dog loved the paddocks and the walks on roads around the cottage. Everything was immaculate - this is the first self catering accommodation I have ever stayed at that I haven't insisted on washing work tops, crockery and bath before using - because everything was spotless!! The owners are really nice too!
Mrs Keevil September 2013
The interior of this cottage exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and very well equipped. The owner kindly showed us round on our arrival, explained how to use the heating etc. and made sure we had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay.
Mr Barber September 2013
A warm welcome awaited us at our arrival at Moonstone. We found the cottage to be a delight with plenty of room to move around. Moonstone is furnished very well with a lot of care taken by the owners to make sure that every comfort is provided for. It was lovely for us and our dog that we could have the use of their paddock (our dog had lots of fun running around). All in all we can highly recommend Moonstone for a lovely restful holiday.
